Having the same issue with my 95 Lumina. First determine if its on the left or right side, then determine if its the wheel bearing or a bearing in the drive axle. If theres clunking associated with the humming (like mine) then its most likely the latter. Is cheaper to just replace the entire drive axle too by the way

Why does your 1994 Mercury Sable not shift into overdrive?

Most likely you have a problem with the torque converter or the valve body in the transmission. If you have around 85,000-120,000 miles on your Sable/Taurus, this is a common issue. Having a transmission specialist look at the vehicle is an expensive but necessary pitfall.

Mazda B4000 fWD Humming Noise coming from Engine?

The humming is caused by a " idol control valve" on top of the motor. It controls the amount of air going to the motor, and when it gets dirty or broken the humming starts. You can take it off and clean it out, (with brake cleaner) but my truck had 200,000 miles on it so I got a new one. It's only 2 bolts, easy to get to, the part is about 26 bucks most places. Good luck.
